E-Textiles II

Technology is all around us in our daily lives, and we augment our own senses and experiences with tech like smartphones and smart watches, but how could we integrate those electronics into our clothes?

E-Textiles II covers the design and fabrication of basic soft wearable sensors from a range of materials as well as integrating these sensors with Arduinos.

Intro To JavaScript I

What is Javascript? Is it related to Java? What is vanillaJS? Is it hard to learn? I know you have many questions, and this workshop is here to help you bust these myths. Javascript is a front-end development language. It can help you build a website and make it interactive much simpler than plain HTML. This is part one of the JS courses. We'll focus on the basic JS Syntax, how to declare a variable, how to create a function in this course. Let's get started!

Options for Managing Your Zoom Recordings

It's easy to record your meetings but at Duke, Zoom is not intended for long-term storage. If you don't "clean up", these recordings can get out of control. You have options to move this content to other locations like Panopto where the user viewing experience is even better. Come to this session to learn how easy it is to automatically move new recordings to Panopto. We will also discuss options for moving your previous recordings.

High Performance Computing And The Duke Compute Cluster

The Duke Compute Cluster (DCC) is a general purpose, high performance, Linux computing cluster with software used for a broad array of scientific projects. The DCC is made up of machines that the University has provided for community use and researchers have purchased to conduct their research. This workshop will provide Duke University researchers with a brief overview of Research Computing resources including the Duke Compute Cluster.

Create A Website: Layouts (Responsive CSS)

You are getting the hang of those basic CSS rules, and even though your site is starting to look good, you feel like you could do more. If this is you, then this class is for you. We will not be diving into completely uncharted territory, but we will build upon what was done in the Create a Website: Styling workshop. In this class, we will talk about why responsiveness is the way to design any site. We will look into the different markers that make up a responsive site, before diving into the different ways to change a layout (displays, floats, flexbox, grid).

Technology and the Hybrid Work Environment: Manager Information Session

Is your department struggling to balance staff working on-site and remotely and finding it difficult to keep people connected? Tune in for this manager information session to learn tips, tricks and best practices for some of Duke's collaboration tools. You will also hear about using video tools effectively for connecting those working on-site vs. remotely.

Intro To Arduino

Introduction to Arduino is a beginner-level class that will introduce participants to the exciting world of physical computing. Participants will learn about how to use microcontrollers in a hands-on workshop. We'll work from examples in the Arduino library to make an interactive LED and music project. No prior experience necessary.

Redistricting and American Democracy

Join scholars, practitioners, and advocates virtually to take stock of the current legal and political landscape, preview the upcoming redistricting process in North Carolina and elsewhere, and discuss the path forward for redistricting reforms. This conference is an opportunity for Duke students, alumni, and other participants to get engaged in the fight for fairer maps in North Carolina and beyond.
